It's not a matter of if, but when you'll lose disk content. Where is your "real" backup?
I am getting a new computer that has a 1TB drive.
I want to purchase a Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition back up.
They have 2 models:
One is: C01W015 with a 1.5TB drive $700
The other is: C01W010 with a 1TB drive $499
Won't I need the larger one because when you do a back up, it backs up your whole computer including free space?
Unless there is a way to stop it from coping the free space?
If there is no way, then with the 1TB, I will not have any room left to save other data right?
I believe that the 1.5 has 2 drives split in half and you get an additional 500 gigabytes correct?
Any help would be appreciated before I purchase it.
The difference is only $200, but I still don't want to spend the extra money if I really don't have to.
